As Sharky approaches her first headline show at Bermondsey Social Club on 20th November, we found out about a few things that do (and don’t) make her tick.

London-based songstress Sharky continues to expand her immersive sonic palette on “Bold As Brass”. A jazz infused alt-pop outing laced with vocals that are equal parts innovative and timeless, it builds upon the silky-smooth sound she’s established with her previous two singles. She explains that ‘Bold As Brass’ in particular “was written to set me on recourse from shyer habits to my bolder self assured ways by taking a sec to look at where I came from to now. I simply want it to encourage and celebrate.”

Sharky’s voice acts almost like its own instrument as her vocals slide from one syllable and word to the next, creating a silky and smooth melodic line against an accomplished jazz/funk/soul musical backdrop.
